British Airways Flying with Confidence Preview

Hi Captain Lim,

I am absolutely petrified of flying.

I get such fear during a flight I feel like I don’t know what to do or even how to talk!! I know half of them can’t be answered as my mind goes over the top with my thoughts but my main worries are,

a. What happens if the turbulence is so bad the plane just stops?
b. What if we are over the sea and there’s turbulence and the pilot can’t control the terrifying shaking?
c. What if we are taking off and the plane just drops back down?
d. What if there’s not enough fuel to go the distance?
e. What if the pilot goes crazy and wants to just let the plane drop!!!!
f. How do other planes tell if they are too close?

I have so many more fears but I will sound ridiculous.

I face the fear by going on holiday (along with panic attacks during the flight) then when I get to the country I’m visiting, I feel like I would rather just stay were I am instead of going through the terrifying plane journey home!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time in trying to help people with fear of flying. It has made me feel a bit better about flying again.

Thank you

Kate

Hi Kate,

As I have so often said, knowledge is the antidote of fear. All those worries that go through your mind above have been mostly answered in my recently launched book LIFE IN THE SKIES. (Please go here to get a copy if you have not already got one)

I was pleasantly surprised to bump into a reader who told me this morning whilst I was doing my exercise outdoor that she was so glad she had read my book. All her doubts and fear of flying are cleared and she looks forward to more pleasant holidays.

She was absolutely captivated by the book. I am happy for the feedback and I hope it would work on more people who are really white-knuckled flyers like her
.
Glad you have benefited from the information and hope you would grow out of your fears as you gather more knowledge about flying.
